– The carmaker has already confirmed that the new Scorpio-N will be available with petrol and diesel engines and an optional 4X4 drivetrain system.

– While the company hasn’t yet revealed its specifications, the SUV’s new model is reported to come with the more powerful 2.0L turbo mStallion petrol and 2.2L turbo mHawk diesel motors.

– The petrol unit is expected to make power around 200bhp, the diesel mill will be good for 130bhp (for the lower variants)/185bhp (for the higher variants).

– Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque convertor automatic. This time around, the Scorpio might get the optional 4X4 system with both petrol and diesel engines.

– Rumour has it that Mahindra might equip the new Scorpio-N with ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) as we have seen on the XUV700. In fact, the SUV’s new model will be high on safety.

– Upfront, the SUV carries the brand’s new logo, a new grille with vertical chrome inserts, LED twin-pod projector headlamps and LED fog lamps. The alloy wheels are bigger (possibly 18-inch) and dual-tone in colour.

– The Mahindra Scorpio Classic (the current generation) comes with projector headlamps, silver/chrome finish grill inserts, halogen fog lamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, silver skid plate and body-coloured ORVMs and door handles.
